1. Blumencorso

This is the largest and grand­est flower show in Europe. Trans­lat­ed from Dutch, this word means — Flower Parade. Blu­menko­r­so takes place in ear­ly Sep­tem­ber, on its first Sun­day, in many cities in the Nether­lands and Bel­gium. Espe­cial­ly for this show, huge plat­forms with bizarre flower fig­ures are cre­at­ed that roam the streets and delight a large audi­ence.

3. Spalding flower parade

This flower fes­ti­val was found­ed in 1935 as a cel­e­bra­tion of the anniver­sary of King George V and Queen Mary. Ini­tial­ly, only tulips were used here, which were in abun­dance at that time. In sub­se­quent years, inter­est in this event increased sig­nif­i­cant­ly, and the fes­ti­val itself stretched over the whole week. A spe­cial 25 km walk and tour was orga­nized to show­case the beau­ty of tulips in the fields of the best pro­duc­ers

4. Genzano Infiorata Festival

Every year, in June, local artists cov­er the entire Belar­do street with a car­pet of amaz­ing flow­ers. For more than two cen­turies, since 1778, this stun­ning dis­play of art has been the pride of Gen­zano artists. The mas­ters are giv­en a spe­cif­ic top­ic to work on, for exam­ple, paint­ings by Michelan­ge­lo or projects by Berni­ni. The car­pet of flow­ers pleas­es the eye for sev­er­al days, after which it is destroyed by local school­child­ren, which is also a tra­di­tion and part of the rit­u­al

5. Brussels Floral Carpet

We have already writ­ten about this won­der­ful fes­ti­val in a sep­a­rate arti­cle. The Brus­sels Flower Car­pet is a spe­cial event that takes place every two years. A huge car­pet of flow­ers is laid out on the main square of Brus­sels in front of the city hall. The fes­tiv­i­ties begin on the evening of August 12, and the flow­ers them­selves are avail­able to view­ers until August 15

6. Batalha de flores in Valencia

The fes­ti­val begins with a lav­ish parade of huge, odd­ly shaped floats adorned with all sorts of flow­ers. After these plat­forms make sev­er­al cir­cles, spec­ta­tors and par­tic­i­pants begin to throw flow­ers at each oth­er and the so-called bat­tle of flow­ers begins, for which this parade is orga­nized. Girls are even allowed to use ten­nis rack­ets to defend them­selves from attack.

7. Battaglia di Fiori in Ventimiglia

This flower bat­tle is held every two years in the Ital­ian town of Ven­timiglia. This fes­ti­val is a cel­e­bra­tion of spring. All com­mu­ni­ties in the city com­pete to cre­ate the most col­or­ful plat­form, which will be judged by the audi­ence dur­ing the fes­ti­val. The plat­forms are almost entire­ly made of flow­ers and each can take up to 80,000 flow­ers.

8. Flower Festival in Medellin, Colombia

This world famous fes­ti­val includes many dif­fer­ent cel­e­bra­tions. The first fes­ti­val here was held on May 1, 1957 and last­ed for 5 days. This parade sym­bol­izes the abo­li­tion of slav­ery, when instead of col­or peo­ple car­ried heavy loads on their backs.

9 Pasadena Rose Parade

The first rose parade in Pasade­na was held on Jan­u­ary 1, 1890, as part of the New Year cel­e­bra­tions and has become a tra­di­tion ever since. Hun­dreds of thou­sands of spec­ta­tors vis­it it every year, and the pro­ces­sion itself is shown on many tele­vi­sion chan­nels in the Unit­ed States.
